Pilar A. Bradshaw, M.D. '95 R '98 is a dedicated believer in the importance of encouraging gifted students to seek their education in the State of Oregon. Although she was admitted to Stanford, Yale and Harvard, both for her undergraduate education and her training as a medical doctor, she chose happily to stay in Oregon. She was a National Merit Scholar and received a Goldwater Scholarship in Math and Science as an undergraduate at the University of Oregon. She graduated summa cum laude and as one of the top inductees to Phi Beta Kappa (Oregon Six) in 1991 as the UO class valedictorian, double majoring in Music and Chemistry. At OHSU, she was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha in her third year as a medical student. Dr. Bradshaw went on to graduate from the OHSU School of Medicine in 1995 as the class valedictorian. She subsequently completed her pediatric residency at OHSU with the rare recognition by the OHSU School of Medicine students as the outstanding resident teacher oncampus, both as a first year and as a third year resident. As an undergraduate, medical student, intern, resident and practicing pediatrician, Dr. Bradshaw continued to play violin professionally in the Oregon Bach Festival for 27 years and was a founding member of the Amici Chamber Ensemble.
